A Floor to Ceiling Window Covering and Mid-Century Modern Design

Hello all, it has been fabulous sharing some of my projects with you on my blog as of late.  The feedback has been incredible and so up-lifting.  It inspires me to keep putting all of my energy into helping this warm community create beauty in their homes and lives.  There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of creating something new.

If you haven’t seen it yet, I have a video tutorial up on the website showing you how to use my Blake & Taylor Chalk Furniture Paint to revitalize an old chair.  I have even shown how you can paint over velvet.  Have a watch and get inspired to spruce up a piece in your home! Watch the video here.

This week I am also excited to share another recent installation I did for a client living at the Teneriffe.  I have completed some fabulous window furnishings in their main bedroom, as well as living area and spare bedroom.  I also chose and installed some fantastic wallpaper in the spare bedroom. window covering Blake & Taylor installation

This apartment lends itself to a mid-century, modern, and eclectic style.  This style allows for so much space to play and make bold choices with colour and pattern.

I chose a chevron lime green wallpaper from one of Thibaut’s collections for one wall of the spare bedroom and a bright happy linen fabric from Marco for the roman blind.  The combination is so intriguing that your eye is instantly drawn into the surprise.

The living room has these incredible floor to ceiling windows that run the length of the room.  Talk about fantastic living!  All that natural light is so dreamy.  I needed to do the space justice by not taking anything away from that feature while still providing my clients some privacy.  The last thing I wanted to do was install some heavy, drab, hotel-worthy tracked panels to block out all the sun and subsequently any happiness as well.

I chose a beautiful embroidered sheer fabric from Andrew Martin and bought reams and reams of it to run the entire length of the 5 metre space.  My girls and I sewed up the curtains and installed a Ripplefold (Wave) tracking system.  This tracking is perfect for a modern style of apartment, especially when it is fixed to the ceiling and it has created the perfect uninterrupted look at the beautiful embroidery on the sheer fabric is this living room.
